Documenting Cultural    Heritage

At Fading Cultures, we use a variety of ethnographic tools to document the cultural heritage of communities under threat.

Culture is a fundamental element of our projects. We partner and support with Artisans across the globe to promote and maintain their human identity in a culturally appropriate context.

High & Wild, Pakistan

 

We are documenting the unique way of life of some of the world's most remote communities in the foothills of one of the world highest peaks, Mount K2.

We are developing projects with the rare K2 Jasper which is a highly vibrational stone that is said to encourage harmony and balance.

Funds committed to this project support a regenerative development cycle in K2.  Profits go towards Environmental sustainability and local economic development for remote women's groups.
